Business analysis is as one of the most important parts of systems development. However, current business analysis methodologies are inadequate because they have phases that are at a too high level and do not map activities, techniques and tools to phases. This research intended to develop a methodology for business analysts in the South African financial services environment. It was based on a qualitative research approach. Sixty participants including CIOs, business analysts, project managers and IS managers were interviewed. Participants presented a purposive sample. Data analysis consisted of finding patterns and themes in the various forms of data, which were segmented into categories and sub-categories by means of the constant comparative method. Key findings were the relevant phases of a methodology i.e. feasibility phase, business case phase, analysis and design phase and post-implementation evaluation phase. Objectives, outcomes and relevance of each of those phases were also identified. Activities, techniques and tools were mapped to each of those phases.
This book frames business analysis in the context of digital technologies. It introduces modern business analysis techniques, including a selection of those in the Business Analysis Body of Knowledge (BABOK) by the International Institute of Business Analysis (IIBA), and exemplifies them by means of digital technologies applied to solve problems or exploit new business opportunities. It also includes in-depth case studies in which business problems and opportunities, drawn from real-world scenarios, are mapped to digital solutions. The work is summarized in seven guiding principles that should be followed by every business analyst. This book is intended mainly for students in business informatics and related areas, and for professionals who want to acquire a solid background for their daily work. It is suitable both for courses and for self-study. Additional teaching materials such as lecture videos, slides, question bank, exams, and seminar materials are accessible on the companion web-page.
